Curieuses histoires de plantes du Canada (2014)

unapi

Le Vinland que les Vikings visitent vers l'an 1000 pourrait-il se situer dans la région de Québec? En 1534, Jacques Cartier décrit l'usage du maïs, du tabac et d'une mystérieuse plante, l'annedda, qui guérirait du scorbut et de la syphilis. Mais quel est donc ce miraculeux conifère? Quel usage fait-on de la gomme de sapin dans les églises en Europe? Quelle sorte de chapelet mangeaient donc les Amérindiens? Il est stimulant de constater que plusieurs questions concernant les premières observations des plantes canadiennes demeurent sans réponse et requièrent encore des efforts de recherche. Cette histoire détaillée, palpitante et pleine de rebondissements, est aussi riche en informations scientifiques, culturelles et historiques souvent méconnues.
